of UFO Mysteries
UFO \ [unidentified flying object] (1953) - an unidentified
flying object; esp.:
Since man first started looking up into the skies
he saw things he couldn't explain. For the last fifty years or
so these things have taken on the label "UFOs." Originally an
abbreviation for the Air Force term "Unidentified Flying Object",
it has become a synonym to most people for Alien Spaceship.
For the Air Force, though, it is simply a term to refer to something
in the skies that the observer can see but not recognize. Usually
the explanation is less extraordinary than a flying saucer manned
by visitors from other worlds. Often a weather balloon or natural
phenomenon is the cause. However, there are cases on record where
no good explanation was ever found.
